Are You Seeking Joy, Hope & Peace?

Please Join Us for a


Blue Christmas ~ Longest Night Service


Have you suffered the loss of a loved one, a job, your home,

a loved pet, your health, your joy or possibly even your faith?

We invite you to join us as we recognize and accept our loss

and to remember and celebrate the gift of light and hope that

God offers to us in the stories of Christmas,
which also began in abandonment, insecurity, and humbleness…

in a time of war and in a poor stable.
